     275 Work towards Max Ott's vision for experiment support  [[BR]]
     276 Provide a way for a GENI user (e.g., experimenter or operator) to access a wide variety of "GENI User Services", where each user service provides an interface (e.g., API or GUI) to the user.  Those user services with a GUI (web) interface are often called "portal services".[[BR]]
     277 Together, the "GENI User Services" should provide all of the functions the user needs to setup and run their experiment, then gather, analyze and present the measurement data.   [[BR]]
     278 These services should work together via APIs, etc., to streamline the experiment process. [[BR]]
     279
     280Tasks [[BR]]
     281 Based upon the configuration defined below, the implementation is split into: [[BR]]
     282 1)  A GENI User Workspace, which is a persistent Linux OS environment dedicated to the user, that serves as a container for multiple user tools [[BR]]
     283 2)  Multiple GENI User Tools, where each provides a service with an interface or a "portal" to the user. [[BR]]
     284
     285 Define, prototype, deploy and operate a GENI User Workspace. It can be hosted on a server dedicated to the user, or on a server hosting multiple user workspaces for multiple users.[[BR]]
     286 Gather the various "user tools" that have been implemented to date, and fit into GENI User Workspace Service so that GENI I&M users can begin to conveniently conduct experiments or instrument infrastructure. [[BR]]
     287 Optimize "user tools" and their interfaces to better meet the needs of GENI users (e.g., experimenters and operators).  [[BR]]

    434 *Include sharing of data with other users (e.g., operators), at an interface with authorization using a GENI credential  [[BR]]
    435 *Show how to monitor clusters/racks [[BR]]
    436 *Show how to measure Layer 2 and OpenFlow paths (with input from OnTimeMeasure project [http://groups.geni.net/geni/attachment/wiki/GEC13Agenda/InstrumentationAndMeasurement/OnTimeMeasure_GEC13-I%26M-Talk.pdf Slides]) [[BR]]
    437 
    438 *Second focus: I&M use cases for experiments [[BR]]
    439 *Consider how to gather basic host measurements with BLiPP service (as was done by INSTOOLS using SNMP) [[BR]]

    441 
    442 ++Extending LAMP with INSTOOLS features: [[BR]]
    443 *Consider how to load tools on top of basic image [[BR]]

    473  What use cases must be supported by GEC14?  by GEC15? [[BR]]
    474  What tools must be available by GEC14?  by GEC15? [[BR]]
    475   Suggest:  Put basic set of tools on common images, ready to add apps.  [[BR]]
    476  How can we best verify that available tools meet the needs of experimenters?  process for fixing bugs?  process for making extensions? [[BR]]
    477  How can we best reach out to experimenters?  tutorials?  workshops?  on-line instructions?  examples?  help desks?    [[BR]]
    478   It is essential to have on-line instructions and examples;  should be easy to retrieve, modify and use.  [[BR]]
